GPC Century Prep Ride #6

This Grizzly Peak Cyclist ride started at the Walnut Creek BART station. It appeared as if there were between 60 and 80 riders. The weather was overcast, with temperatures in the 60's. The route was a clockwise loop around Mount Diablo, via Morgan Territory Road. In San Ramon, after lunch, the riders had 2 options: Go up the South Gate Road, and down the North Gate Road of Mount Diablo, and then head back to Walnut Creek. For those riders who "had enought," there was a second option to head straight back to the Walnut Creek BART station. I chose the second option. 54 miles, 2,670 climb. Date 28 April 2002.
